Weekly Photo Challenge-Rare

 

~~~~~

My contribution for this week’s challenge…

Rare

~~~~~

In July this year, I managed to capture

some reasonable shots of the unexpected…

and have them in reasonable focus what’s more!

Corio-Bay_0013

This sea-bird, not sure if seagull (a tern, or something else)

dropped in for breakfast as I photographed the boats.

Unfortunately subsequent photos,

as it continued to fly away with its catch,

are not as clear.

Two days earlier, July 19 I took this shot

and was very pleased when I enlarged the image…

to see the seagull in almost perfectly reflected.

It could be said that it was dipping its tip in

to see if the winter chill was abating.

Floral Friday Challenge.

~~~~~

In September 2013 I posted this photo of

our north garden bed and our

newly planted cactus/succulents…

whatever you like to call them.

At the top, just before the limelight acacia

is a very small cactus plant.

Today it sports flower like leaves…

cactus_089a

and is about 80 cm in diameter.

I haven’t measured it properly,

however each paver is 40 x 40 cm.

Near enough, I say!
